Tess Daly insists Sir Bruce Forsyth isn't leaving 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The blonde beauty praised her 85-year-old co-presenter as a "legend" and believes he is a better host than other stars half his age.

She said: "Brucie is my homeboy. He's not going anywhere.

"Bruce does the job better than a man half his age. He's a legend. He's not doddery, he is such a talent. And he's so funny."

Tess also insisted she doesn't worry about the show's ratings battle with 'The X Factor' because she is just pleased the show has strong family appeal.

She told The Sun newspaper: "The public seem to like us and that's what matters. It's exciting that our ratings are so good - it's a family show for everyone.

"We've got a great formula and it's so interactive. The public go on the journey with each of the contestants."

The 44-year-old star also admitted she isn't impartial and always has favourite contestants, with Ben Cohen and his partner Kristina Rihanoff her choice at the moment.

She said: "Everyone has a favourite. At the moment mine is Ben, but that changes week on week."
